Numbers 36

LEB(i) 1 The leaders* of the families* of the clans of descendants* of Gilead the son of Makir, the son of Manasseh, of the clans of the descendants* of Joseph came near and spoke before* Moses and before* the leaders* of the families* of the Israelites.* 2 And they said, "Yahweh commanded my lord to give the land by lot as an inheritance to the Israelites,* and my lord was commanded by Yahweh to give the inheritance of Zelophehad our brother to his daughters. 3 But if they become wives to one of the sons from another tribe of the Israelites,* their inheritance will disappear from the inheritance of our ancestors,* and it will be added to the inheritance of the tribe to which they belong; the lot of our inheritance would disappear. 4 When the Jubilee of the Israelites* comes,* it will be added to the inheritance of the tribe to which they belong; and their inheritance will disappear from the tribe of our father." 5 Then Moses commanded the Israelites* by the command of Yahweh, saying, "The tribe of the descendants* of Joseph is right regarding what they are speaking. 6 This is the word that Yahweh commanded the daughters of Zelophehad, saying, 'Let them marry* whomever they like;* only they must marry* from within the clan of the tribe of their father. 7 Thus an inheritance of the Israelites* will not go around from tribe to tribe. Rather, the inheritance of each tribe of his father will remain with the Israelites.* 8 Every daughter who possesses an inheritance from the tribes of the Israelites* will marry* one of the clan of the tribe of her father, so that the Israelites* will possess the inheritance of his ancestors.* 9 Therefore an inheritance will not go around from one tribe to another tribe because the tribes of the Israelites* will each hold to their own inheritance.'" 10 Just as Yahweh commanded to Moses, so the daughters of Zelophehad did: 11 Mahlah, Tirzah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Noah, the daughters of Zelophehad, married* the sons of their uncles. 12 They married* those from the sons of Manasseh son of Joseph, and their inheritance remained* among the tribe of the clan of their ancestors.* 13 These were the commands and the stipulations that Yahweh commanded by the hand of Moses* to the Israelites* on the desert-plateaus of Moab by the Jordan across Jericho.
